Last call: Open application period closes Sunday for guided trips

Upper McCabe Lake and the Shepherd Crest

This Sunday the open application period for my 2019 guided trips will close. Applications received through Sunday, January 20, will be considered equally; thereafter, they will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis for the spots leftover.

If you are interested in a 2019 guided trip, I strongly recommend that you apply now. With the applications received so far, I expect that most of the sessions will be completely full and will have a waitlist, including all the sessions in Alaska, the 5- and 7-day trips in California, and most of the 5-day trips in Colorado. If there are spots left, they are most likely to be on the 3-day Fundamentals courses. Spots will open up later in the season due to cancellations, but they’re unpredictable and not necessarily for your ideal trip.

It’s been another very strong launch for these guided trips. I’m really pleased with both the number and quality of applications.
